FYI #001: NEVER LIGHT A CANDLE IN AN A/C ROOM

September 14th, 2007 | Posted by JeanGrey in Things That Matters

Found this at Friendster Bulletin and from now on I will be posting entries like this…

NEVER LIGHT A CANDLE IN AN A/C ROOM

A friend in our group passed away last week due to carbon-monoxide poisoning. It happened when she lighted an aroma therapeutic candle for the night in a room with air-conditioner ON.

Due to lack of oxygen in the room, the burning of the candle cannot fully oxidize & thus forms dangerous carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide will prevent oxygen exchange in the lungs, resulting in the person dozing off to a state of unconsciousness & eventually death in less than an hour, depending on the room
size.

I am sending this e-mail out to you so that you will be aware of such danger when lighting aroma therapeutic candles in any unventilated room.

Please forward this message to all your loved ones.

    buti na lang walang aircon! May nabasa ako sa newspaper before na may namatay na guy sa loob ng car na namatay, di ko na maalala kung nagpakamatay or nagsuicide sya. Try to imagine nasa loob ng car then bukas aircon then kuha ka ng mahabang hose, yung kabilang dulo ilagay mo sa tambutso ng sasakyan ang the other end papasok sa loob ng car. hmmm ayun sigurado deadz yung taong nasa loob ng car.

    Ang gulo ata ng kwento ko.. LOLZ kagigising ko lang e..sensya na po ;)

    Sa may mga suicidal tendencies jan wag nyong gagawin to… LOLZ wag kayong tanga!
